Register now for ALCW2015: Early registration extended
There are only a few days left to register at more favorable price for The Asian Linear Collider Workshop 2015 (ALCW2015). The Early registration has been extended – but only until Sunday, March 29. Register today!
Being different from the past regional workshops in Asia this workshop is co-organised by KEK, ACFA, and LCC and a new session organisation is attempted; detector sessions consists of several mini-workshops of detector concept and R&D groups.
The workshop, being organised at a critical time for the ILC project development in Japan, will have a special focus on the ILC progress in Japan. Your attendance for his workshop will greatly influence the future of the ILC. Join us from 20 to 24 April 2015, at KEK!
A must-attend is the Tokyo Event on Wednesday – a sSymposium and a special Food Festa to be held on 22 April.
Please see ALCW2015 website for details. Seeing you in Tsukuba and Tokyo !

Rika Takahashi | 5 March 201522 April 2015, the middle day of the Asian Linear Collider Workshop (ALCW), will be a special day. Jointly hosted by Linear Collider Collaboration (LCC) and the Japanese industry-academia collaboration Advanced Accelerator Association Promoting Science and Technology (AAA), two events will be held on the same day: the ILC Tokyo Symposium and the Special Food Festa, Taste of Discovery. A new website for these events is now open.

Rika Takahashi | 22 January 2015The LCC Directorate was given a special treat during one of the stopovers of the Tohoku visit (read also the Director’s corner): ILC korone, a type of chocolate croissant. With chocolate cream on one side (representing electrons) and vanilla cream on the other (representing positrons), and sprinkled with colored chocolate spray as particles, the baker said that they show you new particles at ILC collisions. A delicious example of physics-inspired food… View all photos
Rika Takahashi | 11 December 2014Japanese businesspeople and scientists gathered in Tokyo last week to attend the general meeting of the Advanced Accelerator Association Promoting Science and Technology, which is now a general incorporated association. At this occasion, three special lectures were given Lyn Evans, Hitoshi Murayama and Sachio Komamiya from the Linear Collider Collaboration and Board. The Japanese science community will closely collaborate with the association in the future towards the realisation of the ILC.

Rika Takahashi | 18 September 2014A working accelerator and detectors that take accurate data are great – but there’s more to life than that. If the ILC goes to Japan, it will attract scientists from around the world, who will be moving with their partners and families who will need houses, schools, jobs and paperwork. In a symposium held at Oshu city hall, local representatives discussed with potential future residents what it takes to make the ideal ILC town.

Rika Takahashi | 24 July 2014Last month, LC NewsLine reported the achievement of the world’s smallest beam size of 55 nanometres at the ATF2 facility at KEK. At two international conferences held in June and July, the next record of 44 nanometres was reported by Kiyoshi Kubo and Shigeru Kuroda.

Rika Takahashi | 5 June 2014The expert panel to discuss whether to invite the International Linear Collider to Japan held its first meeting in Tokyo last week. The 17 experts reviewed the challenges pointed out in the recommendation submitted by the committee under the Science Council of Japan last summer, which pointed out the issues to be clarified for a decision to host the ILC in Japan. Their final report to Japan's Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology will be prepared in the fiscal year 2015.

Rika Takahashi | 1 May 2014Following in the footsteps of famous thinkers like German poets Goethe and Schiller, a group of scientists has gathered at Weimar, Germany, for the Loops and Legs in Quantum Field Theory conference. They want to improve theoretical calculations, also for ILC studies.

Rika Takahashi | 17 April 2014Sushi, anime, manga, Hello Kitty, and Harajuku fashion…Many aspects of Japanese culture are setting to tone of cool and trendy around the world. Japan’s Iwate prefecture released videos entitled “Cool Kitakami” on 8 April. Composed of four themes – Tourism and Culture, Life, Future and International Linear Collider, these videos introduce how cool it will be to live around the expected site for the ILC to a non-Japanese audience. Don't miss them!
